Great Quote #2

I love people. I love my family, my children . . . 
but inside myself is a place where I live all alone 
and that's where you renew your springs that never dry up.
Pearl S. Buck

  1. I was introduced to the wonderful Mrs. Buck at the age of 12 when my Grandmother presented me with her very own copy of The Good Earth. I still have it and am looking forward to the day when I can pass it on to my granddaughter. Lovely reminder of the basics, my friend. Thank you.

  2. FF&F......oh my goodness I can't believe this post.
    The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck is one of my favorite books ever. I'm so glad that you made me think of it by writing this post.
    Now, I shall re-read it's been awhile and it will feel like "going back home" to do so. I'm going to make meself a nice hot pot of tea and curl up by my window in our sun room and just read........

    Steady On

  5. That is very beautiful, Saz - Now I'm curious about where you are managing to find such lovely images - but I won't ask! As for how I inserted my 'comments words' - it's just like you did, "Your bons mots here please..." That's how I put in my few new words, inspired by you, once again! Have a fabulous weekend, dear friend! xox

  6. lovely & worthy of the post!


  7. Hey, Thanks for coming by Pappy's Balderdash for a visit. Come back anytime. I have been heavy on the politics lately as it seems to be something everyone wants to talk about here. But, I do try and vary the content. Have a great weekend. Pappy

  8. Ah yes! Mum loved Pearl S Buck and had this book, I read it when I was about twelve.

    Lovely images you've found for this series.

  9. Great quote. This reminds me that I should read The Good Earth again. It's been many years...

  10. Pearl S. Buck was a favourite author of my parents. I remember gazing at the many bookshelves in our house and seeing her name there.


Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
